Thiruvananthpuram: CPM on Tuesday demanded stern action against Sangh Parivar activists who assaulted a 52-year-old wom-an in Sabarimala.
State secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan said the Sangh activists deliberately intercepted the woman and assaulted her to trigger violence. He said women above the age of 50 years were allowed to enter temple even before Supreme Court verdict.
Kodiyeri said RSS had reached a level where they are trying to attack all women and prevent them from entering the temple.
“It is for women, devotees and democratic minded people to think whether what the RSS is doing is right. The family whic was attacked on Tues-day came from Thriss-ur for the “choroonu” of their child. They were detained and then betaten up badly," he added.
He said another dev-otee aged over 50 who came from Andhra Pradesh for Ayyappa darshanam was prevented from entering the temple on the pretext that she didn’t have “irumudi kettu”. All these activities took place under RSS leadership. Now it is clear that the political agenda about which Sreedharan Pillai said recently, was operational in Sabarimala.
The criminal gangs are executing the RSS plan with impunity. He said the police did a commendable job in maintaining restraint despite grave provocation from RSS BJP workers.
The secular and democratic society of Kerala will guard against such provocative actions of the RSS and ensure peace and tranquillity in the state....
